Hello I was recently diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. The doctor put me on 5mg methimazole once daily; symptoms didnt improve and levels dropped more. so they just upped it to 10mg once daily, but now I am having blood pressure problems. My heart rate will go up to 120-140 bpm just walking in Walmart; blood pressure has been running 140/106 and I am wondering if it is the medicine or something else I should be more concerned about? I am short of breath when this happens and get a headache. my chest feels like an elephant is sitting on it. I am 31 yrs old; was at 125lbs 5'5"; now I'm 102lbs. My endocrinologist appointment isn't until the 26th. also kind of embarrassing to talk about it but my heart rate and blood pressure go up like this before I have to go to the bathroom to have a bowel movement. I am not constipated or straining either. Any advice is helpful and appreciated. I feel aweful and just want and need to get back to normal for my 3 kids.
